KLR250 carb nipple

a freind of mine called today, and the fuel inlet nipple broke off of his carb, its a 86 or 87 klr250.

is this a part that can be replaced? like a brass press fit thing?

or is it integral to the carb body?

does any one know the make of the carb? keihn or mikuni with a model number so maybe I can look one up for the guy?

thanks in advance!

same body used on the Mojave ATV, and EX 500, but different models of carbs.

here's a link to a replacement brass fuel elbow.

yeah... eventually i'll get some of those for my bikes... but it's RARE to hear of one breaking on the KLRs. might not be so rare on the hardleys.

stock part is plastic. i like bulletproof.

while you're workig ont he carb might be a good time to replace the screws on the top and bottom with stainless allenheads.

same site sells a finger adjustable pilot jet screw.

I just saw the brass elbow is $35, I predict the guy wants to find a used carb instead.

I passed along the info you gave, and will let him do with it what he does.

Ill suggest a FCR pumper to him.

I could not find the OEM plastic elbow on a parts fiche either, do you know if it is available?

i'm currently hunting for a carb for my KLR 250. it came with a 30mm generic chinese carb and some redneck engineering adapter, and a crankcase breather for a filter.

they ain't common on ebay, and will be roughly the same price as the brass elbow or more.

if i had a carb with the broken elbow, i'd buy the brass elbow without hesitation but i've got NO carb!

i'll pay $20+ shipping for the broken carb

just missed two on ebay for about $30 there's one on there currently with a starting bid of $50

i don't see OEM replacement parts for that on the fiche either.

The elbow doesn't fit

I'm resurecting this post because I just ordered and recieved the brass elbow from the site listed above.

The brass elbow is CONSIDERABLY larger than the original elbow. Mine was broken, leaving only the brass innards. I pulled it out of the carb body and figured I'd just swap in the new one - no dice.

So, I can either bore out the carb body and hope the brass elbow fits, or I can start hunting for a replacement carb.

I just figured I'd give you folks a heads-up before anyone else orders one thinking it'll fit the 34mm CVK. The 40mm CVH on the Harleys must have a larger fuel inlet.

Anyone got a carb for sale?

Did you ever managed to fix it? I've ran into the same problem with my KTM950 Adventure float bowl vent elbow. Seems like the elbows sold as fuel inlets are too big to fit.

CVK 34 replacement fuel vent elbows

I'm resurrecting an '85 KLR. It was a $400 farm bike, about 6K miles, stored indoors, all there, hasn't run in years, starting with the carb. The fuel inlet elbow broke off, the vent elbow was cracked. Bought two Harley brass replacement elbows (Harley Part# 27371-76A, $12 each). I pulled both old brass tubes and discovered the difference in diameters: the original vent tube is 8mm, as is the Harley part; the original fuel inlet tube is 6mm. Went back online and in a moment of desperation ordered a third brass fuel inlet elbow on Ebay: Sirius Consolidated Inc. Part# K-653. Two were left, it's early spring, I agreed to pay $45. It's advertised to fit Harley CV, CVK 40, CVK 34 carbs. I expect it will be 8mm instead of 6mm. Next plan is to take carb body to machine shop have them drill out the fuel inlet and press in the larger elbow. All is not lost: I also have an '05 KLR 250 with 3K miles that will likely need new elbows sometime. My daughter and I plan to ride the pair along the Lewis & Clark trail from Clarksville IN to Astoria OR.
